NAME

       DROP SCHEMA - remove a schema

SYNOPSIS

       DROP SCHEMA [ IF EXISTS ] name [, ...] [ CASCADE | RESTRICT ]

DESCRIPTION

       DROP SCHEMA removes schemas from the database.

       A schema can only be dropped by its owner or a superuser. Note that the
       owner can drop the schema (and thereby all contained objects)  even  if
       he does not own some of the objects within the schema.

PARAMETERS

       IF EXISTS
              Do  not throw an error if the schema does not exist. A notice is
              issued in this case.

       name   The name of a schema.

       CASCADE
              Automatically drop objects (tables, functions,  etc.)  that  are
              contained in the schema.

       RESTRICT
              Refuse  to  drop  the schema if it contains any objects. This is
              the default.

EXAMPLES

       To remove schema mystuff from the database, along  with  everything  it
       contains:

       DROP SCHEMA mystuff CASCADE;

COMPATIBILITY

       DROP  SCHEMA is fully conforming with the SQL standard, except that the
       standard only allows one schema to be dropped per  command,  and  apart
       from the IF EXISTS option, which is a PostgreSQL extension.
